About the Emory University Nurse-Midwifery MSN Program (http://www.nursing.emory.edu/admission-and-aid/msn-programs/nurse-midwifery.html):
“Emory has been a leader in educating Nurse-Midwives for over 35 years. The focus of our program, born in 1977, is to prepare the next generation of nurse-midwives capable of leading positive change and providing the primary care needs of essentially healthy women across their lifespan, along with the care of normal newborns. Our faculty bring their diverse national and international leadership, research, and clinical experience into the classroom to advance the future of midwifery care and education.”
“We prepare students to become leaders who exemplify excellence in the care of women and families. We value holistic, family-centered care that honors the normalcy of women’s life cycle events, treating all with respect and dignity. Emory nurse-midwifery graduates are well-poised to develop and deliver evidence-based care in partnership with women, and in collaboration with an interdisciplinary team. Emory nurse-midwives strive to transform health care to improve the well-being of women and their families in local and global communities.”
